According to recent reports, if Hillary wins the presidency she will appoint Vice President Joe Biden as her secretary of state. This will give Biden the opportunity to inappropriately grope women around the world but probably wouldn’t work out well for American foreign policy.
Politico has the story:
Clinton eyes Biden for secretary of state
Joe Biden is at the top of the internal short list Hillary Clinton’s transition team is preparing for her pick to be secretary of state, a source familiar with the planning tells POLITICO.
This would be the first major Cabinet candidate to go public for a campaign that’s insisted its focus remains on winning the election, and perhaps the most central choice for a potential president who was a secretary of state herself.
Neither Clinton, nor her aides have yet told Biden. According to the source, they’re strategizing about how to make the approach to the vice president, who almost ran against her in the Democratic primaries but has since been campaigning for her at a breakneck pace all over the country in these final months.
“He’d be great, and they are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins,” said the source familiar with the transition planning.
Biden has had enough time at bat working for the government. We need new people in Washington.
Joe can go play golf with Obama in Hawaii.
